On May 10, Swanson, 42, had been on a walk from Seattle to Brazil to attend the World Soccer Games in 2014 when he was struck by Hiatt’s pickup truck and later died, according to Lt. Jerry Palmer of the Lincoln City Police Department. Swanson told The News Guard, in an interview the day before his death, that the journey was the next step in his life. A license background check through the Oregon

Motor Vehicles Department records section shows Hiatt has a valid Oregon driver’s license and a number of driving convictions. He was convicted on Oct. 7, 2009 for a speeding violation in Lincoln County. He also received a speeding conviction June 18, 2010 in Tillamook County. On Oct. 19, 2010, Hiatt was convicted in Tillamook County Court for failure to properly use a seatbelt. Following the tickets the DMV imposed a

driver improvement restriction on Hiatt based on three convictions in an18-month period. According to the DMV, Hiatt was restricted from driving between the hours of midnight to 5 a.m. unless it was to and from work or required for his job. Hiatt’s license was suspended from Jan. 19, 2011 until Feb. 18, 2011 for receiving four or more driving convictions. He applied for, See ARREST, Page A8

The June 12 story on the city’s support of the Lincoln City Cultural Center (“Cultural Center gets financial boost,” A2) mistakenly stated that the LCCC board was working on a “major fundraiser to generate $1.5 million to support the center.” The goal of the fund-raiser, set to begin in 2015, will actually be $10,000, about 1/3 of the center’s annual income from donations.

State parks looking at conduct rule changes More than 40 million people visit Oregon’s state parks every year to enjoy camping, hiking, picnicking and other traditional recreation with friends and family. Park rules help visitors enjoy parks as they protect park resources and reduce conflicts between people. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is updating park rules to keep them current, and is taking public comments on the proposed changes. The proposed changes to Oregon Administrative Rule 736-010 do not rep-

resent a major departure from the current rules, but they will clarify the intent, and make the park rules consistent with other department rules and state statues. Some of the proposed changes would ... 1. Explicitly make breaking most rules a class D violation, rather than the class A.

This change brings park rules in compliance with recent changes in the “Schedule of Fines” prepared by the Office of State Court Administrator, Oregon Judicial Department. The rules also specify which violations may warrant higher- or lower-level fines. 2. Establish reasonable standards for control-

ling behavior of domestic animals when on park property. 3. Clarify allowable visitor activities regarding length of stay in campgrounds, open periods for day use areas, areas where motorized vehicles may be used in parks and fire safety in the parks. 4. Clarify what unusual park activities may need special permits, and what the process is for obtaining a permit. 5. Adopt reasonable standards for natural resource removal to ensure resources remain available

for everyone’s enjoyment. 6. Prohibit hunting on several Willamette River Greenway properties due to safety concerns resulting from nearby residential development. Copies of the proposed rules may be found on the OPRD website http:// and are available upon request from OPRD. OPRD is conducting public hearings across the state, including one held June 18 in Newport. Other hearings will be held in St. Paul and in Bend this week.

The deadline for accepting written comments is June 21 at 5 p.m. Comments may be submitted to OPRD. publiccomment@state. or mailed to Richard Walkoski, 725 Summer Street NE, Suite C, Salem, OR 97301. Those wishing to comment during a public hearing must register with the hearings officer in the first 30 minutes of the meeting. Accommodations for persons with disabilities are available if requested in advance by calling 503-986-0719.

Stolen plaque causes controversy ODOT encourages

Depoe Bay Salmon Bake has been canceled The annual Depoe Bay Salmon Bake, used as a way to generate funds for the Depoe Bay Chamber of Commerce and has been a popular visitors draw for many years, has been canceled. The announcement was made June 13 through an email sent to Chamber members by Carole Barkhurst, Depoe Bay Chamber office manager. Burkhurst said a lack of manpower to put on the event was the reason behind canceling the Salmon Bake. “At this time it is necessary to notify the membership that all plans for the September 21 Salmon Bake in Depoe Bay have been stopped,” wrote Barkhurst.


The Depoe Bake Indian Salmon Bake, held for many years each September, has been canceled. “ It is not possible with the current available planners to make this event happen this year. This is not a decision

that we arrived at easily and it is not one that we are happy to have to make.” The Salmon Bake has

been a popular venue for Depoe Bay for over 60 years, according to former cook Phil Taunton, the manager of the Spouting Horn Restaurant and Chamber president, in an interview with The News Guard in September 2012. “We’ve been doing the salmon bake here in Depoe Bay since the late ‘30s, and the chamber helped make it official in the early ‘60s,” he said. “It’s just one of those end-of-summer, get-togethers where we have some music and a lot of folks turn out for a neighborhood gathering.” Taunton resigned as Chamber president and moved his family to Texas earlier this year.

Imagine excavator Vince McFadden’s dismay when he reached down and picked up a section of debris in a remote Rose Lodge quarry that had his name on it. The employee of Dan Kauffman Excavating Inc., unearthed a piece of granite plaque last month that had been stolen from the concourse of Voris Field paying tribute to those who helped build the facility and contributed its artificial playing field by donating time and money. “In 15 seconds, the first piece he found had his name on it, so he knew exactly what it was,” Dan Kauffman, owner of Dan Kauffman Excavating Inc., whose name

various citizens have protested the lack of prosecution against a former board member in the school’s booster club who allegedly had a part in the plaque’s disappearance. The Lincoln County District Attorney’s Office has said it will not prosecute the case unless the school decides to pursue it. Taft High Principal Scott Reed, who met with boosters and other concerned citizens last week, said he would not comment on the matter pending further investigation. “We as volunteers have agreed to put up the money to get it replaced,” Kauffman said. “I think the community needs to know what’s going on here. This is about doing the right thing.”

New AAA study: Hands-free driving is not risk-free


here is a looming public safety crisis ahead with the future proliferation of these in-vehicle technologies.

Hands-free technologies might make it easier for drivers to text, talk on the phone or even use Facebook while they drive, but new findings from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety show dangerous mental distractions exist even when drivers keep their hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road. According to AAA, this is the most comprehensive study of its kind to look at the mental distraction of drivers and arms AAA with evidence to appeal to the public to not use these voice-to-text features while driving. The research finds that as mental workload and distractions increase, reaction time slows, brain function is compromised, drivers scan the road less and miss visual cues, potentially resulting in drivers not seeing items right in front of them, including stop signs and pedestrians. With a predicted five-fold increase in infotainment systems in new vehicles by 2018, AAA is calling for action as result of the research. “Hands-free does not mean risk-free,” said Marie Dodds, AAA Oregon/ Idaho public affairs director. “There is a looming public safety crisis ahead with the future proliferation of these in-vehicle technologies. AAA believes it’s time to consider limiting new and potentially dangerous mental distrac-

and electronics industries to join us in exploring: • Limiting use of voiceactivated technology to core driving-related activities such as climate control, windshield wipers and cruise control, and to ensure these applications do not lead to increased safety risk due to mental distraction while the car is moving. • Disabling certain functionalities of voice-to-text technologies such as using social media or interacting with e-mail and text messages so that they are inoperable while the vehicle is in motion. • Educating vehicle own-

ers and mobile device users about the responsible use and safety risks for in-vehicle technologies. AAA also is using the findings to promote dialogue with policy makers, safety advocates and industry to ensure that these emerging in-vehicle technologies won’t lead to unintentional compromises in public safety. As part of this effort, AAA has already met with safety advocates and provided copies of the report to CEOs of all major U.S. automakers. Read how the research was conducted in this story at

s Salishan Hills recognized for wildfire preparedness Salishan Hills has earned Firewise Communities/ USA® recognition from the National Firewise Communities Program following its efforts to reduce the vulnerability of homes and landscapes to wildfire. Salishan is the 33rd community in Oregon to be recognized as Firewise Communities/USA and is the first coastal community in Oregon to gain such recognition. Salishan worked with Michael Curran, wildland fire supervisor with the Oregon Department of Forestry, to conduct a wildfire hazard assessment and develop a plan to address safety concerns. Residents then worked together to implement the plan. “Salishan Hills is thrilled to be a Firewise Community, and we are so grateful for the assistance of Michael Curran and Blake McKinley of the Oregon Department of Forestry for helping us achieve that status,” said COURTESY PHOTO Michele Paul, Salishan Salishan Hills has been recognized for residents’ efforts to reduce wildfire danger. Firewise committee mem-

ber. “They have made us so aware that living in the forest we needed to take actions to protect ourselves and our forest and those that inhabit the forest. We have addressed the hazards of overgrown bushes, trees and underbrush. We look forward to our continuing partnership with the ODF which is designed to help our community identify and reduce the risk of wildfires.” To receive Firewise Communities/USA recognition, Salishan met a rigorous set of requirements. The community completed the following activities: Began wildfire home evaluations on close to a quarter of the residences, created a “safe zone” in case of an emergency, started work on fuel reduction projects in common areas throughout the community, began preliminary work to create better access for emergency responders, and plan to create an emergency evacuation plan. Working through the National Association of

State Foresters (NASF), the Oregon Department of Forestry supports the Firewise Communities/USA recognition effort. The program began in 2002. Firewise is a nationwide initiative that recognizes communities for taking action to protect people and properties from the risk of fire in the wildland/urban interface. This program is of special interest to small communities and neighborhood associations that are willing to reduce vulnerability to wildfire by adopting and implementing programs tailored to their needs. The communities create the programs themselves Depoe Bay Fire and Rescue and the Oregon State University Extension Service were contributors to the Firewise effort. Communities interested in earning recognition may visit for more information, or contact Michael Curran at the Oregon Department of Forestry in Toledo at 541336-2273 x215.

Celebrating the sun at Siletz Tribal Recreational Area JEREMY C. RUARK The News Guard

The Siletz Tribal Energy Program will celebrate a newly installed $160,000 solar panel project at the Siletz Tribal Recreational Area from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, June 20, with a ribbon cutting. The Siletz Tribe received a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency in early 2011 to install the solar panels on the roof of the Siletz Tribe’s Fitness Center and the Sprung Structure gymnasium in order to offset part of the power used at the two buildings. The project includes a 32-panel array on the Fitness Center, a 78-panel array on the carport, supplies, labor and installation Additional solar panels will be added to the buildings. There are also 13 streetlights with LED solar lights

in the same area. “The benefit goes to all Tribal members as the streetlights produce light for safety and security and produce their own power and are not tied to the electrical grid,” said Claire Wood, Siletz Tribal Energy Program project coordinator. “The benefit of the solar panels on the buildings and the carport is to directly reduce the cost of the electric bills in both of the facilities.” The solar panels will also be hooked up to a monitor, which will display information about how much power is being produced and used. “The monitor will also be accessible by Internet so people do not have to be on site to see the data,” said Wood. “This fulfills some other grant objectives, such as educating the community about the results of the study, and encouraging energy conservation practices at the individual level, such as reducing vehicle


New solar panels have been installed on the Siletz Tribal Recreation Center, and the Tillicum Fitness Center miles traveled, weatherizing homes, and other energy efficiency improvements.” Wood said the fitness

center is open to all Tribal and community members and is a good place to showcase the new technology.

NOAA designates local communities as ‘TsunamiReady’ Several communities and organizations, including Lincoln City, Depoe Bay and Newport, have received the NOAA TsunamiReady and StormReady designation. NOAA’s (National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration) National Weather Service programs are voluntary community preparedness programs to promote tsunami and weather readiness in a community, with the primary goal of improving public safety. An important benefit of the program is communities that become StormReady and/or TsunamiReady are eligible for reduced flood insurance rates through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Once a community is designated as StormReady or TsunamiReady, it earns Community Rating System (CRS) points, which may be ap-

plied toward lowering NFIP flood insurance rates. Insurance deductions range from 5 to 45 percent depending on the number of CRS points a community earns. The program uses a grassroots approach to help communities develop plans to handle local severe weather, wave impacts, flooding threats, and help communities inform citizens of threats associated with each hazard.

Once a community achieves this designation, they have an infrastructure in place to educate and inform residents of the threat of tsunamis and other hazardous weather, capability to receive and disseminate tsunami and severe weather warnings to the local populace and a plan to deal with a tsunami or any weatherrelated emergency. To be recognized as TsunamiReady and StormReady, a community must: • Establish a 24-hour warning point and emergency operations center; • Have more than one way to receive tsunami and severe weather warnings and forecasts to alert the public; • Create a system that monitors local weather conditions; • Promote the importance of public readiness through community semi-

nars; • Develop a formal hazardous weather and tsunami plan, which includes training severe weather spotters and holding emergency exercises. As part of this application process, several entities in the county were identified as TsunamiReady Supporters. These local entities promote the principles and guidelines of the program into their tsunami safety and awareness plans. Entities may be eligible as a Supporter based on the bylaws of the local NWS Advisory Board and the endorsement from local emergency management.

Create a family disaster plan for emergencies The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office wants to encourage you to prepare your household for a natural or man-made disaster by creating a family disaster plan. Earthquakes and tsunamis are not the only disasters that could strike. Your family plan should be prepared for any disaster or emergency. • Mark two escape routes from each room. Post a copy of the drawings at eye level in each child’s room. • Establish a place to meet if you need to leave your home. • Plan how you will contact each other if you’re not together when an emergency strikes. Select a friend or relative who lives away from your area that family members can contact to notify they are safe. The American Red Cross offers a safe and well web site to provide families with a tool to exchange welfare infor-

mation with loved ones and friends in the immediate aftermath of a disaster) https:// safeandwell.communityos. org/cms/index.php. • If you must leave and time allows, you might need to shut off your utilities in your home before evacuation: Have all family members learn the proper shut-off procedure for your gas meter. (Note: a qualified professional must turn the gas back on for you after an event). Locate the shut-off valve for the waterline that enters your house. Locate your electrical circuit box. Always shut off all individual circuits before shutting off the main circuit

breaker. • Make a record of your personal property for insurance purposes. Take photos and/or video of the interior and exterior of your home and personal property. You can visit and type in “house inventory” in the search box and then click on “inventory” to download a free inventory book to help you record your belongings. • Store important documents such as insurance policies, deeds, property records, and other important papers in a safe place such as a safety deposit box away from your home. • It’s advisable to keep a small amount of cash or traveler’s checks at home in a safe place where you can quickly access them in case of evacuation. • If someone has a disability or a special need, be

sure to think about how you’ll accommodate them in an emergency situation. You may be able to register with the office of emergency services or local fire department for assistance so needed help can be provided. Keep specialized items ready i.e. wheelchair batteries, oxygen, catheters, medication, food for service animals, etc. • Create a network of neighbors, relatives, friends, and coworkers to aid you in an emergency. • Regarding pets: identify shelter (both local and away from the area) for them ahead of time as typically pets are not permitted in emergency shelters. Gather pet supplies such as food, water, leash, and pet carrier. Ensure they have and then keep with you, proper ID and up-todate veterinarian records. Your local animal shelter can provide you with more advice

and information. • For large animals like horses, cattle, sheep, etc: Map out primary and secondary escape routes in advance. Make sure they have some form of identification. Have transportation available to move them if necessary. It’s important that family members know how to administer first aid, CPR and use a fire extinguisher.

Oregon Coast Community College: The academic year by the numbers Oregon Coast Community College (OCCC) deals with many important numbers. As Governor Barbara Roberts closed out the 2012-2013 school year on June 14 as the College’s 25th Commencement speaker, I was reminded of how the college serves a diverse community. The college awarded; 52 degrees and 172 Certificates of Completion in various disciplines, as well as 137 General Education Development certificates. “Students” included business owners, individuals who took an extended break after not completing their education, individuals who hail from other countries, or those who are pursuing a college degree. These are the individuals who determined that the college could help in their life path and both the student and college worked to make this a successful partnership. Even university bound students who are financially savvy utilize the college in order to reduce their overall level of debt. The savings can be significant (up to $19,600 for the first two years of college by attending OCCC versus an OUS school). My wife and I have two children attending a state university, so this data is easy to calculate! Less debt translates to lower monthly loan payments and decreased stress level. This past year OCCC served 1,800 individuals including 800 students enrolled in college credit classes. This represents about a 10 percent increase in enrollment over the previous year. As a community we need to encourage others to utilize the community college. Qualified high school students also have the

opportunity to earn college credits through the Lincoln County School District’s (LCSD) program of expanded options. The district pays the college tuition, fees and books for high school juniors and seniors. This arrangement is a win-win-win between the student LCSD and OCCC. Besides gaining knowledge, these students also develop self-confidence and are even better prepared to succeed at a four-year institution. Another number to share is that 15 high school seniors in Lincoln County were extended a tuition-free scholarship to attend OCCC as Oregon Coast Scholars. Two individuals from Taft High School, Alexander Getty and Madison Carner were presented the scholarship offer during Taft High School’s Senior Award event. This is a scholarship that is renewable for a second year and is valued at approximately $4,700. Why college in light of taking on such debt? The Community College Journal provides two pieces of evidence to support college completion. This publication recently reported that on average unemployment rates drop from 14 percent those not completing high school to 6.8 percent for those with an Associate degree. This figure is an improvement over the unemployment rate for Lincoln County (8.5 percent

Oregon Coast Community College in April). The level of income also follows a similar trend of increasing with the level education achieved. A potential resource for financial assistance is FAFSA (Free Application for Financial Student Aid). This program reflects the nation’s and Oregon’s investment in those who may have financial barriers to accessing higher education). OCCC also offers a limited number of scholarships offered through the college or the community. This year the college also experienced several “firsts” by offering Marine Biology, Criminal Justice and Medical Assistant. Criminal Justice courses were also held at the North campus along with Speech, Psychology, Spanish, Community Education, General Education Development, and Small Business Management classes. Enrollment is a key element to offering these classes as the State legislature has under-funded community colleges over the past several years. Currently the proposed $450 million budget to support the 17 Oregon community colleges for two years is slightly about the 2009

allocation of $432 million, but well below the 2007 funding level ($500 million). The College successfully proposed a $270,000 project on a state bill to allow $9.6 million in capital construction at Oregon community colleges. The OCCC projects will utilize local contractors and workforce to complete the tasks. These funds allow the college to specifically modify the south campus to support a medical assistant program and to convert the north campus science room into a science lab. Lincoln City work will commence soon, with local contractors doing all of the on-site work. The science laboratory will feature laboratory worktables with sinks, faucets and natural gas spigots to enable students to conduct laboratory activities. The funds also enable to college to outfit this laboratory with equipment to support the development of students in science disciplines. In addition, OCCC is embarking on a college-wide effort to have a greater proportion of students at OCCC

Center’s Farmers Market, she saved a little dog from heat stroke. It wasn’t easy as it took almost two hours of her time in running two kids around the Center to see if they could find the owner of the locked car. She enlisted the help of three people and our finest, the Lincoln City Police Department. Because it was taking too long she squirted water through a barely open window so the little dog would stop panting. The incident was under control with Lincoln City Police Department in charge and the owner opening his car. That little dog and I thank you Patti. Wally Kohl Lincoln City

reach their aspirations by earning degrees or certificates. OCCC is collaborating with Tillamook Bay Community College to address this institutional goal. Stopping short of this student declared goal can be very defeating to that individual with the passage of time. After examining some data figures (numbers) we determined that students have taken up to eight years to earn their degree and that on-average, degree attainment took over three years. Such students displayed grit in their determination. This coming year, the College will put into place strategic actions targeted at retaining more students from term to term, as well as attempt to reduce the amount of time required of under-prepared students prior to enrolling in college level courses. Both of these strategies can potentially contribute to greater graduation rates. In closing, each paragraph contained some reference to a number and how that figure relates to OCCC this past academic year. The number one thing that OCCC encourages and promotes is a completing college culture. We want each person to fulfill their aspiration at OCCC. So to the student, “Don’t stop one foot short of that goal, OCCC will be supporting your efforts throughout that time”. Thank you to each community member for your support of the College’s efforts.

There were 72 write-in names for our uncontested Position 7 with the North Lincoln Health (Hospital) District Board. We are extremely fortunate that Mike Holgren contacted others for his write-in campaign. He received the most votes and will be sworn in as a public official again (he’s a former Mayor) at our July Board meeting filling the position vacated by Kathy Kramer, R.N., whose perspective and participation were valued and appreciated. At the same time, Mike will bring a wealth of public service and community involve-

ment with him to the table. Re-elected to the Board were Robert Landhuis,Terry Bruggenhagen, and yours truly. Continuing in their positions are Esther Schwartz, Kitty Bushman, and Dr. Robert Mass. This is an extraordinary group for these challenging times as we contend with health reform initiatives at the federal, state, and regional level. The North Lincoln Health (Hospital) District has been blessed with strong leadership ever since the first seven were elected to build a hospital in 1967 and this Board will continue that legacy. G.

Members of North Lincoln Fire & Rescue District #1 were rewarded with a free dinner last week as thanks from owner Ana Quijas, who has reopened the Mexican restaurant, Puerto Vallarta, at 3001 N.W. Highway 101 in Lincoln City. The restaurant was closed due to an electrical fire on Oct. 9, 2012.

Puerto Vallarta restaurant reopens following fire JIM FOSSUM The News Guard

They’re serving up Mexican food on an expanded menu amid a sparkling new and colorful Spanish environment with the reopening of the Puerto Vallarta restaurant in Lincoln City. The restaurant, located at 3001 N.W. Highway 101, was destroyed by a fire that started in an electrical panel on Tuesday, Oct. 9, of last year. It reopened last week with a free dinner for firefighters in appreciation of

their efforts in handling the blaze. “We are thankful for their work and the work of the contractor [Jim Hoover] in getting the restaurant open again,” owner Ana Quijas said nine months after the fire caused extensive damage to the kitchen and smoke rendered the rest of the building useless. The restaurant, with an entirely new interior and menu expanded to cater to special Hispanic tastes, is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily and until 10 p.m. on Saturday.

just before midnight on Tuesday, Oct. 9. NLFR sent three engines and a heavy rescue vehicle to the scene. In addition, Depoe Bay Fire and Rescue and the Nestucca Rural Fire Protection District provided assistance. The fire caused an estimated $200,000 damage to the structure and $40,000 to $50,000 damage to its contents, Fire Marshall Doug Kerr said. “The whole restaurant had to be rebuilt due to smoke damage, however.”

Groups to consider draft fish conservation plan for coastal rivers The stakeholder groups that have been advising Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife on future management actions for coastal rivers will review the first draft of a management plan June 28 and July 2 at meetings in Tillamook and Reedsport. The meetings are part of an ongoing process that began in August 2012 to develop a Coastal Multi-Species Conservation and Management Plan for salmon, steelhead and sea-run cutthroat trout populations along much of the Oregon COURTESY PHOTO Coast. Public meetings are scheduled this month to According to Tom Stahl, review a coastal fish conservation plan. ODFW assistant conservation

Two public meetings to review the draft plan will be held, the first, in Tillamook from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 28 at the Port of Tillamook Bay, located at 6825 Officer’s Row Road and in Reedsport July 2 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Reedsport Community Building, 451 Winchester Ave. The meetings are open to the public, and the agenda includes an opportunity for public comment. Stakeholder groups include representatives from commercial and recreational fishing,

tribal and local government, watershed councils and conservation and land-use interests. Stahl said ODFW expects to release a revised draft plan to the public later in the summer that will reflect the additional input of the four stakeholder groups. There will be a number of opportunities for public input on the plan before a final version is presented to the Fish and Wildlife Commission in the fall. A copy of the draft plan, as well as the results of a public opinion survey conducted by Oregon State University, is available on the ODFW website.

Dealing with Oregon tax cheats to reduce ‘tax gap’ Guest Column By Rep. David Gomberg

firms that file in offshore tax havens like the Cayman Islands or Lichtenstein to avoid Oregon taxes. Losses are estimated at $18 million. So what can be done? Some positive steps are underway. Legislation is advancing closing the tax haven loophole. The Department of Justice is suing Wall Street. The Department of Energy is reviewing Shepard’s Flat. And some of us suggest that the Secretary of State should audit credits as aggressively as we do agencies. The Department of Revenue has asked for 31

new employees. Eleven will work on collections and twenty on audits or fraud. For an expense of roughly $3.8 million, they expect to collect $19.5 and $13.6 million respectively -- $31.1 million total. That’s a great rate of return! But some of us are asking why they can’t do more. Consider adding just one revenue agent. In two months, they could pay for ocean mapping and measuring to support our fishing industry. In six months, they would generate enough to fund the entire request of our Small Business Development Centers and help local small business. In one year, they could pay for the proposal to encourage movie and television production in Oregon. No matter how you slice up their time, one more agent would create jobs. Perhaps instead they could help treat mental ill-

ness, promote agriculture, improve roads or even cut taxes. I’d love a discussion on how to spend the money. The point is that more staff is needed to collect what is owed all of us. What we need is legislative direction to the new director of the Revenue Department. I think he is doing well and moving in the right direction. But I’m new here and anxious. I want to see more. • Recalculate the tax gap, both personal and corporate income, every two years to better understand the extent of the problem. • Ask the Secretary of State to audit the Department of Revenue at least once every four years.

• Require tax compliance for all state vendors and contractors before they can do business with the state. • Publish online a list of individuals and businesses that owe more than $15,000 and are out of compliance. • Adopt a systematic and quantifiable plan to bring down the tax gap including performance measures, benchmarks, and timelines. Oregon has one of the lowest combined tax burdens in the nation. But not everyone pays their fair share. And while I understand that organizing collections and confronting cheats will be difficult, I think it is an effort we need to make.

We have over a billion dollars each year in unpaid taxes. If you are among the Oregonians who painfully pay your fair share, this number should leave you frustrated and angry. As we talk in detail about raising revenue, funding or cutting programs, reducing retirement commitments, or creating jobs, we also need to talk about the money owed our state but not yet paid.

I’m a small business guy. When our company needs cash, before we sell off assets, cut staff, or renege on commitments made to employees, we look at receivables and collecting the money owed us. As a new legislator, I hope to do the same thing with state budgets and your money. Six hundred million dollars. That’s the total for tax returns filed in Oregon that did not include a check or a payment plan. We need to do a better job of collecting those receivables. The amount is comparable to all the changes we made to PERS this year. Tax cheats annually deny the state $1.3 billion by filing false returns, taking unreported cash payments, or failing to file at all. These criminals break the law, but we don’t catch and prosecute enough of them. The so called “tax gap” is enough to pay the difference between where our schools are and where we want them to be — adding back class days and teachers, reducing class sizes, and improving results. There are other examples of money owed the state. Our Treasurer believes that Wall Street investment firms have swindled us out of over $150 million. This is more than simply receiving less than we had hoped for; we’re talking outright corporate fraud. Tax Credits suffer abuse as well. At the Shepard’s Flat Wind Farm, the Department of Energy believes New York development firms improperly subdivided into multiple companies to claim $20 million in extra benefits on top of the $10 million they properly earned. Perhaps the most outrageous example of tax avoidance is the Oregon

Ocean Watch vessel to be used at Newport camp Oregon 4-H has launched a new marine research vessel, Ocean Watch, which set sail from San Francisco Bay to Newport this week. The vessel will serve as a marine research platform for the 2013 Ocean Watch 4-H Marine Ambassadors Camp hosted by Oregon State University. The camp takes place the week of June 30. The Ocean Watch vessel is owned by Captain Mark Schrader, who will serve at the helm of the 64-foot vessel along with his crew. Schrader, a lifelong sailor and active marine conservationist with a mission to engage people on the importance of environmental health, is partnering with 4-H to mentor the young people attending the camp in the area of marine science. Ocean Watch was purchased and completely refitted with new wiring, plumbing, electronics and rigging one year prior to embarking on the project. For the past decade, the vessel has been used as a marine science research platform. “4-H knows that young people are leaders today, right now,” said Mary Arnold, Ph.D., professor and 4-H youth development specialist at Oregon State. “As a result of the incredible positive impact that youth can make, this 4-H Marine Science Ambassador’s program has the potential to change the course of ocean and waterway health as we engage young people in the importance of marine science and technology, and create excitement for future education and careers in this area.” The 2013 Ocean Watch 4-H Marine Ambassadors Camp will take place at Oregon State in Corvallis

The marine research vessel, Ocean Watch, will be part of the 4-H Marine Ambassadors Camp in Newport. and in Newport, where they will conduct marine science research on the vessel. Throughout the program, camp participants will be immersed in curriculum that will include experiments, projects and marine science activities in a university campus setting and in the field. The campers will learn to be 4-H Marine Ambassadors, attending classes on tsunamis technology, NOAA’s Essential Principles for Ocean Literacy, and learn to design and build remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) on the OSU campus. In addition, the young people will study invertebrate taxonomy at Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport. There, they will be introduced to Ocean Watch, perform research aboard the vessel, and sail to coastal education sites to study tide pools, marine mammals

and birds, beach ecology, fresh water stream ecosystems, estuaries, and tides and tsunami debris. Participants will also be trained as Teens as Teachers, which will enable them to continue their role as 4-H Marine Ambassadors in their respective communities using an ocean acidification science kit in their community outreach programs. For the remainder of July, Ocean Watch will be berthed in Newport, and marine science opportunities will be open to 4-H clubs, other youth organizations and families. To learn more about the Ocean Watch tour opportunities, available July 6 to July 31, contact OSU 4-H Program Coordinator Todd Williver at 541-574-6534 ext. 22 or e-mail todd.williver@

Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife officials have issued a public alert concerning newborn wildlife.

Leave young wildlife in the wild feed. They do so in secret and we humans are often not aware of the situation until we find the fawn,” said Love. “The best thing to do is to leave the fawns where we find them so mom can come back when she feels it is safe to do so.” Removing wildlife from the wild and keeping wildlife in captivity without a permit is a Class A misdemeanor. Holding marine mammals or migratory birds, or disturbing the nests, eggs, and young of migratory birds, are violations of federal laws. What you should do to help young wildlife • Never assume an animal is orphaned and remove it from the woods, forest or even your backyard. Leave it alone and leave the area. Call your local ODFW office or OSP before you approach any young wildlife. • Keep your dog or cat away from young wildlife. “Fawns are fragile and often don’t survive the stress of a dog chase. Obey leash laws at parks to protect young wildlife,” notes Tonya Moore, ODFW assistant district wildlife biologist in Clackamas. • If you see an animal that is clearly is in distress, is being disturbed by peo-

ple or pets, is lying near or on a road, or that you know is orphaned because you saw its parent die, call your local ODFW office, Oregon State Police office, or a local wildlife rehabilitation center that is approved by ODFW. • If you see a seal pup, young sea lion, or other marine mammal in distress, contact OSP’s hotline at 1-800-452-7888. For information on young w wildlife, visit the Living with Wildlife section of ODFW’s website.

During spring and early summer, Oregon’s wildlife are giving birth and raising their young, teaching them what to eat, where to take shelter and how to survive in the wild. During this period, mothers will leave their young alone, often for extended periods of time, to feed and so that they do not draw attention to their newborns. Unfortunately, every year well-meaning people pick up these young animals, believing them to be orphaned, and take them home in an attempt to care for them. If calls to local Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife offices are any indication, spring 2013 will not be an exception. In Charleston on the South Coast, ODFW district biologist Stuart Love received a call from a well-meaning man who picked up a deer fawn he believed had been abandoned by its mother. Love counseled the man to immediately take the fawn back to where he picked it up. The man did that same morning and the doe returned in the night to move its fawn to a more appropriate place. “The moral of the story is that the adult animals hide fawns and go off to

Car fire, police chase leads Albany man indicted in double to arrest of Lincoln City man fatal Highway 20 crash

A Lincoln City man faces multiple charges following a car fire and police chase on June 16. The case unfolded as Lincoln City Police Department responded to the Ridge Apartments, at 3425 S.E. Harbor Drive shortly after midnight on a reported vehicle fire. Information was obtained that the vehicle fire was possibly intentionally set and officers identified the suspect as Anthony Richard Stanton of Lincoln City. Stanton is the estranged husband of the victim. As Lincoln City Police officers were responding, Officer Torin Liden located Stanton’s vehicle, a white ray 2007 Ford F150 pickup, traveling northbound on Highway 101 near S.E. 23rd y, City street, heading away from the location of the vehicle fire. n Officer Liden attempted ter a traffic stop, but Stanton accelerated and a pursuit

Anthony Richard Stanton was initiated. Stanton continued to travel northbound on Highway 101, eventually heading east on Highway 18, where Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies attempted to deploy spike strips to disable Stanton’s vehicle. The spike strips were unsuccessful. Polk County Sheriff’s

deputies deployed spike strips in Grand Ronde, near the Spirit Mountain Casino. One set of spike strips was successfully deployed and the passenger side tires were hit, but Stanton continued eastbound on the flat tires. Near the Fort Hill Restaurant, deputies were able to set up another set of spike strips and this time the driver’s side tires were hit. Stanton continued driving for another half mile before he stopped and was taken into custody. Stanton was taken to the Lincoln County Jail. He faces charges including arson II, criminal mischief I, attempt to elude police-vehicle, contempt of court, reckless driving and DUII. His bail was set at $205,000. Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, Oregon State Police, Polk County Sheriffs Office and North Lincoln Fire and Rescue assisted Lincoln City Police.

A 46-year old Albany man has been indicted in the Oct. 25, 2012, double fatal traffic crash that killed a Toledo-area man and his daughter on Highway 20. The defendant, Wallace M. Beaver, 46, turned himself in to Oregon State Police June 14 after he was indicted earlier this month by the Lincoln County Grand Jury. Beaver was later released from custody pending an appearance in Lincoln County Circuit Court on two counts of Criminally Negligent Homicide. Beaver is expected to appear in Lincoln County Circuit Court at 8:30 a.m. June 24. According to authorities, on Oct. 25, 2012, at approximately 8:17 a.m., a 2001 Dodge Dakota pickup driven by Beaver was westbound on Highway 20 near milepost 24 about a half-mile east

highway. Daniel Loper and his right front passenger/ daughter, April Sherri Loper, 34, from Toledo, were pronounced dead at the scene. The passenger’s 2-month old son in a child carrier safety seat in the left rear seating location was transported with nonlife threatening injuries. Beaver was also injured in the crash. OSP troopers from the Newport Area Command Office, with the assistance of the Lincoln County District Attorney’s Office, conducted the investigation. Senior Trooper David Peterson was the lead investigator. OSP was assisted at the scene by the interagency Lincoln County Crash Team comprised of officers from OSP, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office, and Newport Police Department.

Ironwoman Bearden came to Oregon to work in her uncle’s Pig N Pancake restaurant in Seaside before transferring to its Lincoln City location a few years ago. She started slowly with mostly cardiovascular work, then was told she had the physique for bodybuilding, “which I didn’t believe because I didn’t have a lot of confidence at the time.” “When it kicked in for

me is when I turned 40,” she said, “and that was the end of 2010, so I started working out a bit with weights and just decided I wanted to compete.” Competitions the past couple of years at the Emerald Cup in Bellevue, Wash., and another recently at Chinook Winds Casino Resort have propelled Bearden to success in the sport. As a competitor in the figure division, she won the Master’s competition in 2011 at Seven Feathers Casino in Canyonville, and placed third overall. She then finished with another third and a second, respectively , earlier this year at the same competition after taking 10 months off. Most recently, she won the Master’s title and placed fourth overall at Chinook Winds. “I just like being fit and healthy,” she said. “It just makes me feel good.” Mother of a girl, Crystal, 26, and two boys, Christopher, 22, and Chase, 20, Bearden is parlaying her physical work at the gym with studies in nursing at OCCC. While she originally went into nursing, she’s making a switch to physical therapy. “I think it benefits me; it’s more my field,” she said. “I want to become a personal trainer. I hope this directs me to help people to be more healthy in life and teach them how

I want to help people with weight problems. They can have confidence and do it, and a lot of people don’t, so I just want to inspire people to be healthy.” Bearden thanks several people for her ascent to a fit and healthy lifestyle. Besides the dedication of trainer Edward

Barrilleaux at Fitness 101, there’s been Robert Dempewolf, who first recognized her ability to make it on the fitness scene. He calls Bearden’s growth as “a real feel-good story, and one of a ‘can-do’ attitude.” “He’s been a very big inspiration,” Bearden said. “He inspired me to do this. I didn’t believe him, but one day, it just kind of

clicked.” Then there’s Kristi Tauti, a personal trainer and Bearden’s coach, who keeps track of her diet weight, body fat percentages, the works. “I just want other people to be the same way as I am, to get in shape and be fit,” she said. “That would be the most rewarding thing for me.”

Palmer said an investigation team conducted detailed examinations of the crash site and forwarded the information collected to the Lincoln County District Attorney’s office. Palmer said Hiatt initially remained at the scene of the crash

and was issued, a hardship license that allowed him to drive to and from work. His license was reinstated Feb. 18, 2011. Hiatt was also conviction Nov. 29, 2010 for speeding in Lincoln County. But that conviction did not get posted until after the restriction was issued. Hiatt license was

Taft wrestling gets financial jolt from Pacific Power JIM FOSSUM The News Guard

Pacific Power Regional Community Manager Doris Johnston presented a $1,000 check from the Pacific Power Foundation to the Taft Tiger Boosters last week to improve safety in the high school’s wrestling program. The Taft Tiger Boosters have raised funds the last few years to improve safety for youth sports in Lincoln City, Booster Club President Kathy Joy said. Joy wrote a Pacific Power Foundation grant for funding towards safety wall mats for the Taft wrestling room. Taft is the only school in Lincoln County with a wrestling room unequipped with wall mats. “Safety is also important to Pacific Power for employees and the public,” Doris Johnston, Pacific Power regional community manager, said. “I’m pleased we are able to assist in the boosters efforts.” Cost of the mats is $6,853. A total of $3,985 has been raised — $1,000 from a ceiling sweep of cash at Roadhouse 101; $500 from Taft 7-12; a $1,000 foundation grant check; and $1,485 slated for the project from the Taft Tiger Booster Board. The monies the board allocated were from the Pacific Power Global Days of Service Program. Global


Pictured, from left, are Taft Tiger Booster President Kathy Joy, Taft wrestling coach Luke Hall, Pacific Power Regional Community Manager Doris Johnston,Taft High Principal Scott Reed and Taft High Assistant Principal Ryan Hawkins. Days of Service money is allocated from Pacific Power Foundation to nonprofit entities for whom employees volunteer in their com-

munity. From April 2012 to March 2013, volunteers logged 325.5 hourse, earing a donation towards Taft

Tiger Boosters of $1,485. The balance of money needed toward the mat project is $2,868, which will be an agenda item at

the July 10 booster meeting, Joy said. Taft Tiger Boosters, along with Taft High, has been awarded two additional grants in the past. In 2009, Pacific Power Foundation grant funds were used to purchase two AED (Automated External Defibrillator) units. Coaches and teachers have been certified and are trained annually. In 2010, Pacific Power Foundation funds were used to purchase 30 first-aid kits for sports teams and school use. The Pacific Power Foundation is part of the PacifiCorp Foundation, one of the largest utility-endowed foundations in the United States. The foundation was created in 1988 by PacifiCorp, an electric utility serving 1.7 million customers in six Western states as Pacific Power (Oregon, Washington and California) and Rocky Mountain Power (Utah, Wyoming and Idaho). The foundation’s mission, through charitable investments, is to support the growth and vitality of the communities served by Pacific Power and Rocky Mountain Power. For more information, visit

‘ Trekking’ camp gives kids a foot forward

Eleven-year-old Chris Cooper’s no fool. Why else would he want to participate in the Lincoln City Community Center’s Summer Day Camp program? “Because otherwise I’d be doing chores and all that other kind of junk,” the Oceanlake Elementary School sixth-grader said earlier this week as he climbed from the pool at the Community Center. The camp, themed “Trekking” for all the walking the kids do from place to place, is an unique learning experience designed to develop social skills and build community knowledge. It began June 12 for approximately 35 boys and girls 5 to 11 years of age. Overseen by the husband and wife team of Bonnie and Phill Stone, it incorporates learning in all its wide array of activities, from athletics to arts, and aquatics to adventure. “We try to explore all the businesses we can and we walk,” Bonnie Stone said, “so, if you see a long, long line walking down the street, that’s us. We try to find out about the businesses and what they provide the

community so that we can be part of that when we get bigger.” What the kids, who numbered approximately 40 last year, do are play things like Sprout Ball and Stupid Ball (forms of dodge ball), and participate in gardening, water sports, bowling, Karaoke, movies and more “You can do a lot of new activities and it’s cool,” Bear Reyes, an 8-year-old Oceanlake third-grader, said. The kids learn history, too. When they tour the North Lincoln County Historical Museum and participate in a scavenger hunt designed to instruct the children on the community’s past. “We have a field day, bus field trips, movie time at the Bijou,” Bonnie Stone said. “We really try to get them involved in their community.” The programs encourage campers to take on new challenges, explore new interests and develop specific talents, allowing each participant to gain confidence and skill in whatever endeavor they choose to partake, she said. It encourages happiness and success through thinking and problem-solving; enhancing selfesteem, building life skills,

increasing self-reliance and developing friendships. “Making new friends,” is 11-year-old Oceanlake sixth-grader Lucero Reyes’ favorite thing about the camp. The camp, which runs weekdays from 7:45 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. through Aug. 30, includes beach, forest and mountain excursions; boating, hiking, picnics and sightseeing. Campers only need lunch, a swim suit, towel, walking shoes and appropriate clothing. “It allows parents who come to see the community to be a part of it by going out to the various establishments by themselves and leave the children with us,” Stone said. Cost is $85 per week for residents; $110 for nonresidents. Daily drop-ins are $20 for more than five hours and $10 for five hours or less.

The best pumpkin spice cake you’ll ever taste

Kite flying takes center stage

Sandy told me after church about a commissary experience she had when in Okinawa with her husband. While he cut up in the meat department, as a civilian serving the military, she worked in the bakery. One day, the bakery introduced a new device for cake decorating. By means of a projector positioned directly over a sheet cake, it could throw any photo image onto the cake. The decorator then could simply draw, in frosting, the image whether it be a person, landscape or whatever. When Sandy’s practice turn arrived, she gripped the frosting nozzle and paused … and paused … (“I was scared to death!”) until finally her supervisor’s voice behind her implored, “Breathe, for Heaven’s sake, BREATHE!” The supervisor, explained later, was afraid Sandy was going to black out from lack of oxygen and fall face-first into the cake. “I still remember that as if it was yesterday,” breathes Sandy. PUMPKIN SPICE LAYER CAKE, CARAMEL/CREAM CHEESE FROSTING 3 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 2 teaspoons baking soda 1 teaspoon cinnamon ½ teaspoon ground ginger ¼ teaspoon ground cloves ¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg ¼ teaspoon ground allspice ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom 2 teaspoons finely grated orange peel 1 15-ounce can pure pumpkin 1-1/2 cups sugar 1-1/4 cups vegetable oil 4 large eggs Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour two 9-inch cake pans with 1-1/2 inch high sides. Whisk first 9 ingredients in a large bowl. With electric mixer, beat pumpkin, sugar and oil in another bowl. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add orange peel. Add flour mixture , beat on low setting until blended. Pour batter equally into prepared pans. Bake cakes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, or about 33 minutes. Cool in pans 10 minutes, then remove to rack. FROSTING: 1 pound confectioner’s sugar, divided ½ cup plus 1 tablespoon heavy whipping cream 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ cup unsalted butter, room temp. 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, room temp. orange zest Sprinkle ½ cup powdered sugar over bottom of a small nonstick skillet. Place over medium heat, without stirring, until sugar melts. Continue cooking until sugar turns dark amber, stirring occasionally, about 2 minutes. Gently stir in ½ cup cream, vanilla and salt. Mixture will bubble considerably. Stir until any caramel bits dissolve. Stir in remaining 1 tablespoon cream. Strain into a small bowl and cool to room temperature. Sift remaining powdered sugar into medium bowl. With electric mixer, beat ceam cheese and butter in large bowl. Slowly beat in powdered sugar. Add and beat in the cooled caramel. Cover and chill about 2 hours, to spreading consistency. With long knife, trim rounded tops from cakes and give to children. Place 1 cake layer rightside-up on cake plate. Spread 3/4 cup frosting over. Add second layer on top, cut side down. Cover top and sides of cake with remaining frosting. Sprinkle orange zest lightly on top. Serves 12.

Lincoln City’s Summer Kite Festival June 22-23 JEREMY C. RUARK The News Guard

Kite fliers from across the Northwest and beyond will gather June 22-23 at D River Wayside, for the 29th annual Lincoln City Summer Kite Festival. The event is a celebration of professional and leisure kite fliers with some of the world’s most colorful big show kites. This year’s theme is “Tales of Tails,” honoring the pod of Gray Whale kites that will be on display throughout the two-day festival. Many of the best kite fliers from the Pacific Northwest and from all over the world come to the festival. But it is also a favorite event for many locals. “We have many good people right here in Lincoln City that love flying kites,” said Deb Cooley, Associated Oregon Kiters president and a Lincoln City resident. “I just enjoy flying kites and having fun with family and friends. The kite world is a family. That means each

time I get to go fly kites, I am with my family.” Cooley is a veteran kite flyer, enjoying the activity for 35 years and one who knows the ups and downs of the sport. “Lincoln City has a narrow beach, so you have to watch out for the waves,” said Cooley. “The south winds can be tricky because it usually means rain. The wind has to be just right, not too strong and not too light.” Cooley’s husband, Ken Tumminia, is also a kite flyer. “I just like the people that gather to fly kites,” said Tumminia. “I also enjoy spending time outdoors.” Tumminia said the makeup of kites has changed over the years, from light paper and sticks to specialized fabric, fiberglass or aluminum. State Representative David Gomberg, a kite shop owner in Lincoln City and Seaside, has

Strawberry Moon river float There is a full Strawberry Moon on Sunday, and the Salmon Drift Creek Watershed Council is offering a nighttime kayak trip on the Salmon River estuary, complete with Oregon strawberry shortcake. “We will be only a few days into summer with one of the longest days of the year, and the moon is quite close to the earth, so this will be the biggest full moon of 2013,” said Paul Katen of the Salmon Drift Creek Watershed Council. Those taking part in the float should meet at the Knight Park boat ramp, on Three Rocks Road north of Lincoln City at 7:30 p.m. Sunday evening June 23. The sun sets at 9:07 p.m. The moon rises at 9:19 p.m.  Participants must provide their own gear, including a life vest and whistle, and sign a liability waiver.

The event is alcohol and drug free. Watershed council volunteers will lead the flotilla upstream to get a view of the moon from the East. Along the way, the volunteers will point out completed and proposed restoration projects in the Salmon River estuary. The flotilla will paddle back down against the incoming tide to the lower estuary to enjoy a moonlight view of Cascade Head. The float trip is expected to end at about 10:30 p.m. There is a suggested donation of $10. Donations help the SDCWC continue work on restoring the Salmon River and other local watersheds. The SDCWC is a 501(c)(3) organization. For more details, call PHOTO/JOANNE DASCHEL Paul Katen at 541-994-9682 or email at pckaten@charter.

Hiking Oregon’s History Author William L. Sullivan will present a slide show at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 22, at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum that takes participants on an armchair hiker’s tour of Oregon’s most scenic historic sites. Based on his outdoor guidebook, “Hiking Oregon’s History,” the presentation follows Lewis and Clark’s trail across Tillamook Head and traces Chief Joseph’s trail of tears through Hells Canyon. Expect tips on dramatic hiking trails to fire lookouts, lighthouses and gold mines, mixed in with anecdotes about trailside wildflowers and geology. In short, it’s a glimpse into Oregon’s largest museum, the great outdoors. Sullivan is the author of 10 books about Oregon. Listening for Coyote, the journal of his 1,361-mile solo-backpacking trek across Oregon in 1985, was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award in creative nonfiction. Since then, he has published “Exploring Oregon’s Wild Areas,” a historical novel about pioneer Oregon entitled “A Deeper Wild,” and five detailed guidebooks in his popular 100 Hikes series, including “100 Hikes in Northwest Oregon.” A fifth-generation Oregonian, Sullivan grew up in Salem. At 17, he won a scholarship to study at remote Deep Springs College in the California desert, where his duties included milking cows by hand. He went on to earn a degree in English from Cornell University and an master’s degree in German from the University of Oregon. He and his wife, Janell Sorensen, have bicycled 3,000

Celtic Festival a success The Celtic Heritage Alliance reports the annual Celtic Festival and Highland Games drew a preliminary head count of 5,485 during the June 7-9 weekend, an increase of 400 people over last year’s event. “We are still collecting data and running our numbers, but it was clear from the crowds, ticket lines, and participation that this was a record attendance for us,” said Belinda Goody, the festival’s executive director. “Notably, there were no police, emergency, ambulance or fire calls to the fairgrounds again this year.” Attendance was up at all of the “Fringe Friday” events such as the Kilted Run, which raised funds for the Lincoln County Animal Shelter, and the Sand Castle Contest, which raised food donations for the local

miles through Europe, studied two years at Heidelberg University in Germany and built a log cabin by hand on a road-less stretch of the lower Siletz River. They live with their two children in Eugene, but visit their cabin regularly. The hour-long presentation on Oregon history will take place at the North Lincoln County Historical Museum, 4907 S.W.

been taking part in the Lincoln City kike festivals for the past 30 years. “It takes a special kind of person to do this and there is a little bit of a showman with it,” said Gomberg. “We like to share that with thousands of people.” Gomberg said the annual kite festivals held in Lincoln City in the fall and summer are designed to help boost the economy. “Many years ago, Lincoln City used the kite festivals to brand the city as a family destination,” said Gomberg. “The kites are clearly family oriented. They are relatively inexpensive and fun for all ages. That makes it a perfect fit, and the fact we have more oceanfront mid-priced hotel rooms than any place between Seattle and San Francisco, adds to the economic benefit.” Scott Humpert, with the Lincoln City Visitor and Convention Bureau, said the kite festival is one of the year’s biggest events.

and Texas to compete in the Highland Games. Local novice competitor and former Olympian, Adam Kriz took second place in his first Highland Games competition. State champions from Washington, Oregon and Idaho entered this year. Returning national champion, Mark Wechter and newcomer and two-time world champion lightweight Jeff Thornton took first in their respective divisions, while 15-year-old novice Hailey Mowell took fourth in her Highland Games debut. Fans can find festival photos on the Newport Celtic Festival and Highland Games Facebook page. Exit surveys for this year’s festivities can be located online to offer feedback at www.newportcelticfestival. com.

Snack Pack Program. Goody said that the festival sold out their vendor spaces early with 34 retail vendors, 37 educational and nine food vendors, not including 20 clans. Fans packed seating to

enjoy 37 live Celtic music and dance performances with newcomers “Murder the Stout” as a new crowd favorite. Fifty-one athletes came from California, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, Alaska

“We estimate that it draws over 10,000 people who will spend money on lodging, meals and at our local stores and shops. So it is a big economic boost for that weekend,” he said. Humpert said kites appeal to both young and old. “For the older folks, it reminds them of their youth and for the younger ones, the big show kites are the attraction,” he said. “It is really a very unique event.” Gomberg said Lincoln City is the perfect fit for kite festivals because of the weather and terrain. He said the whale kites are an especially pleasing attraction. “The whale kites fit in with the fact that Lincoln City and Lincoln County are such a great destination for whale watching,” said Gomberg. “More people site whales along the Oregon Coast than anywhere else in the rest of the world. The whale kites are a neat symbol of what is going on out in the ocean along Oregon’s beaches.”

Deep sand causes concern at beach entrance

Police and area residents continue to warn motorists about the dangers of getting stuck in the sand at the bottom of the 15th Street beach entrance hill. On June 7, while on a water rescue call to the beach just off the 15th Street entrance, North Lincoln Fire & Rescue District #1 water rescue crews had to maneuver their emergency vehicles past a vehicle stuck in the sand at the bottom of the hill.

water before the rescue team arrived. It appeared that the person was alright. Gretchen Wynne lives on 15th Street and is so concerned about vehicles becoming stuck in the sand; she placed a cardboard sign at the hill entrance that reads, “Caution Deep Sand.” JEREMY C.

Two small grass fires last week in the Lincoln City area are a reminder of an early fire season and the danger looming this summer along the Oregon Coast, according to fire officials. Both fires occurred June 5. The first fire charred about an acre of grass 500 feet from Highway 101 along Three Roads Road northeast of Lincoln City. The cause of the blaze is undetermined, as is the second blaze that

Taft third-graders mount book drive after fire Effort follows fire that destroyed school JEREMY C. RUARK The News Guard

Even though Crestline Elementary School is hundreds of miles away in Vancouver, Wash., a Feb. 3 fire that

destroyed the school has promoted Taft Elementary School third-graders to lend a few helping hands. Taft student Kahliah Moroyoqua, 9, said the students took action when they learned about the Crestline School fire. “We felt bad that the school burnt down,” said Moroyoqua. “We wanted the kids at that school to feel better, so we got them books to read.” As a part of the Lincoln County

School District project SEAL (Students Engaged in Authentic Learning), Taft teachers selected a project that was of interest and brainstormed ideas for solutions to the problem. “As teachers, our task was to engage students in the project using innovative strategies,” Taft third-grade teacher Micky Willoughby said. “When Crestline

Mortician’s victims paid deeply for losses JIM FOSSUM The News Guard

In undoubtedly the most documented, publicized and controversial police case in Lincoln City history, corpses were abused and left unidentified when several unembalmed, decomposing bodies were eerily discovered in a local mortician’s chapel in the fall of 1984. But who were the real victims? Perhaps they were the friends and family of the bodies then-34-year-old Dale Patrick Omsberg was paid

police chief Mike Holden, isn’t buying that. “Something,” he said, “was amiss with the man.” Omsberg’s death at age 63 last month from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Myrtle Beach, S.C., following an alleged sexual assault seems to confirm suspicions that the man who served just 23 days of a 30-day sentence with time off for good behavior struggled with demons no one can possibly explain. Ironically, a psychiatric evaluation of Omsberg, which then-District Attorney Ulys Stapleton said factored into


except to say that I am truly sorry. I didn’t want it to happen and make no excuses. I hope and pray that you will forgive me.” Many did, including Diane Bassett, whose husband’s body was found Oct. 19, 1984, under a sheet on a table in the mortuary’s garage. “I pray for him and that he’ll be able to put his life back together again and that his wife and two little boys can do the same,” she said following the sentencing. “But it is almost as though you have to live the death again. I think some of us will never get over

At the time, the only state regulations on crematories were Department of Environmental Quality standards for air pollution. The Legislature has since required that bodies be diligently tracked through paperwork and a stainlesssteel tag. Other states followed suit, but efforts of the locally led “Missing in America” campaign brought about a measure of closure for the victims of the gut-wrenching tragedy that left their loved ones’ whereabouts unknown. The repercussions led to a demand to alter what was
